    P4's Note:

    This is my original pasta sauce. It's different than those that are simmered all day, but it's better than jarred sauce, and it's quick. You can also play around with the seasonings to suit your own taste. DO NOT - please - cut the amount of olive oil. Trust me on this. It sounds like a lot, but it's not, really, when you add all the pasta.

      Add the tomatoes with their juice, the herbs and salt.

      Stir to combine, bring to a good simmer, turn the heat to low and let cook, uncovered, for about 20 minutes.
    5. 5
      Mix with cooked pasta and serve.
    6. 6
      Note 1- add as little or much garlic as you like- we like a lot.
    7. 7
      The same with the other ingredients- add the herbs you want in the amounts you want.
    8. 8
      You can saute 1/2 of an onion with the garlic if you like it.
    9. 9
      Note 2- You can substitute fresh herbs, but if you do double the measurement, and add them during the last few minutes of cooking.
    10. 10
      Note 3- add some raw, peeled shrimp to the sauce for the last five minutes for shrimp pasta.

      I needed pasta sauce for another recipe and made this one because it didn't take too long and was not too involved. It is excellent with a really nice consistency as well as taste. I think this recipe will be made on a regular basis...
